You can choose from a variety of carpet specifications and natural colour options to create the right synthetic turf which fits in with any existing surfacing in the area and is suitable for its use along with fitting within your budget.

The benefits of having a synthetic turf lawn include its low maintenance requirements, its durability and its great versatility for use with a range of different areas and purposes. The technology of artificial turf carpets has advanced greatly in recent years. Now the best quality of artificial grass has UV stability to prevent colour fading from sun exposure.

How is Artificial Grass Installed?

If you’d like the surface to look of high quality, you will have to ensure that a specialist contractor installs the artificial lawn. We advise that you perform a variety of background checks and obtain various customer referrals before selecting the company. This helps make sure that the entire process operates well without any issues. We carry out leisure grass installation for a number of areas including domestic homes, outside commercial buildings and more.

The price for artificial grass can vary depending on a variety of elements. Make sure to measure the widest and longest parts of the area you want to install the surface. This makes it much easier for use to provide a quote. We can complete prep work prior to the installation. The preparation tasks need to be done to make the best foundations for the synthetic turf to be laid onto.

This consists of excavating the present surface and then laying down a sub-base. We make certain to complete our installations to the very best standard to ensure our clients are happy with the end result.

What is Leisure Grass?

In the United Kingdom, a number of people have started looking for synthetic turf for their backyards and other establishments. Leisure grass surfacing is perfect for outdoor areas at a range of establishments. Paths and artificial putting greens are both common areas where someone may choose to have fake turf. This is due to the low upkeep and excellent appearance.

This is due to many reasons, for example, the temperature in the UK. Considering that the weather conditions in Great Britain are not great at times, gardens can become unusable. This is often because natural turf can flood and get extremely dirty. Synthetic turf is suitable for use all year long and it doesn’t form dirty puddles. The synthetic lawn is SuDS compliant, which means the surfacing is not going to hold water or flood.

Artificial grass has enhanced a great deal recently and many improvements have already been produced. This means the synthetic carpet works far better during wet and cold weather conditions. The surface has enhanced in how it looks also, mainly because it now appears similar to natural surface. It’s UV dependable, meaning that it won’t discolour in the sunlight.

Artificial surfacing is available in various depths and colours, which means you can decide the way you would like it to appear. Numerous shades of green are available, and also surface sizes of 15mm, 20mm, 24mm, 30mm and 40mm depth. A range of specifications are on offer, therefore the client can choose a surface to satisfy their demands.

History of Artificial Grass

Artificial turf was first installed in 1964 on a prep school recreation area in Rhode Island. The material came to public prominence in 1966, when AstroTurf was installed in the Astrodome in Houston, Texas. The state-of-the-art indoor stadium had attempted to use natural grass during its initial season in 1965, but this failed miserably and the field conditions were grossly inadequate during the second half of the season, with the dead grass painted green.

Due to a limited supply of the new artificial grass, only the infield was installed before the Houston Astros’ home opener in April 1966, the outfield was installed in early summer during an extended Astros road trip and first used after the All-Star Break in July.

The use of AstroTurf and similar surfaces became widespread in the U.S. and Canada in the early 1970s, installed in both indoor and outdoor stadiums used for baseball and football. More than 11,000 artificial turf playing fields have been installed nationally. More than 1,200 were installed in the U.S. in 2013 alone, according to the industry group the Synthetic Turf Council.

Leisure Grass Service Specialists

As leisure grass service specialists we have carried out many projects in the UK to residential gardens and larger commercial projects. The process of installing synthetic grass lawns involves rolling out the chosen synthetic carpet onto the prepared ground and securing the surface at the seams and the edges.

We’ll then install a layer of sand within the artificial turf fibres to keep them upright and enhance the look of the final surface. Once the installation is complete, it’s important to look after your synthetic lawn by regularly brushing through it to clear away debris and litter that may have fallen onto the turf.


We can carry out this maintenance work as well as artificial turf services to repair any damage which may occur due to heavy use and weathering over time. This could include seam and joint repairs and fixing minor damage to the grass carpet.

Feel free to get in contact with us if you need more information on the artificial grass surfacing that we can install for recreational areas, gardens and other outdoor facilities. We can supply you with further details on specification and design, as well as an idea of costs for a project you’re looking to carry out.

Peter Gilpin (Devon Artificial Grass Garden) – We were asked to quote on 24m² artificial grass garden in Devon for Peter Gilpin. He wanted the surface to be durable, soft underfoot and look like real natural turf. His main concern was that the synthetic carpet be dog-friendly. This video shows the installation of the surface:

Here is his reference of the works completed.

I was very impressed with the strong work ethic of the team. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I am so pleased that I chose your company for the installation.

May Dallas (Glasgow, Atrificial Grass Installation) – This client came to us because she wanted her current turf to be removed and replaced with artificial grass for many reasons. Please have a read of the reference below.

The reason we decided to get artificial grass was because the grass was not growing good. Patches, weeds, uneven, and my husband turns 60 years old this year and wanted to make life easier for him.

A plus side my granddaughter can play safely and do her gymnastics as it is soft not jaggy on the skin.

Good quality which is reflected in the price.
